Do you love dogs and young people? Here's a chance to volunteer for a nifty organization that brings together a mission to help homeless dogs and at-risk youth.
UnChained, Inc. matches dogs from local shelters and rescue
organizations with at-risk youth. Using positive-reinforcement training, the kids learn to
train the dogs. The teens learn positive communication with each other, mastery of a skill, impulse-control and future orientation.
In turn, the dogs learn good manners, basic skills
and confidence which increases their chances of a successful adoption.
UnChained is asking volunteers who love dogs, kids and have some dog handling
Time commitment: Beginning January 2014, 1 or 2 days per week for 8 weeks, 2 school
The organization's winter programs begin January. Volunteers needed in Monterey
and Santa Cruz counties are Youth Team Leader, Dog Chauffeur and Dog Foster Family.
